Tulare County Library Helping Visalia Residents Stretch the Food Dollar

This fall, join Tulare County Library in Stretching the Food Dollar.

The Visalia Branch is offering workshops and book clubs on subjects like couponing, meal planning on a budget, and money management starting in September.

The first workshop, on couponing, will begin Friday, September 12, at 3:00 p.m. in the Blue Room of the Visalia Branch. The series of workshops will cover topics such as coupon math, price matching and adhering to coupon policies. The book club, beginning Wednesday, October 1 at 6:30 p.m., will include how-to books on couponing for everyday needs as well as *extreme* couponing to stockpile for a rainy day.

Additional programs will focus on how to make a meager food budget stretch, how to plan your family meals to be inexpensive, healthy and easy to prepare, and how to manage your money a little better to make ends meet. The program is a result of a Library Services and Technology Act grant through the California State Library and Infopeople's Eureka Leadership program.

To sign up for the series, call Librarian Amanda Grombly at 713-2710 or email her at  Space is limited, so please sign up as soon as possible!
